for the big storm. jennifer davis is live in cape cod, massachusetts, tonight. it looks a little windy. what's it like where you are? >> reporter: hi, there. you know, it's quite lovely, i have to say, right now. there is a breeze, not too strong. it's not raining yet. but we do believe earl is on his way. there is a lot of big questions here. those hurricane-force winds did not actually come on land in outer banks. are they going to do it here? that's the big question. it's unclear. this storm could skirt the coast and go past us or a small deviation could bring it on land. they're telling folks be careful and alert. if it comes up this way it could be a category 1. hard to tell at this point. >> what about evacuation at this point? is that, you know, something they're considering, have any but ordered already? >> reporter: no. not really. there is a quaint, beautiful town about 10 miles down the road called chatham. we spent time there today. a lot of tourists here wandering through the shops and cafes. there is a hardware store in the town. folks with stocking up on supplies.
